Unshattered: Overcoming Tragedy And Choosing A Beautiful Life by Carol Decker and Stacey Nash

A Tragedy & Recovery Most Can't Imagine

- A Remarkable Family! -

“On June 10, 2008, Carol Decker walked through the hospital doors a healthy woman with flu-like symptoms and early labor contractions. Three months later, she returned home a blind, triple-amputee struggling to bond with a daughter she would never see.”
What Carol didn't realize when she went to the hospital is that in reality she had sepsis, not the flu. This book takes the reader through the deep feelings that Carol Decker experiences while trying to cope with an unimaginable illness and loss of herself. It is a very honest look at working through the emotions of what-will-never-again-be to acceptance and in fact thankfulness for each day of her life.

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me:  I definitely wanted the thoughts by her husband Scott Decker included, but I would have liked it to have been at the back of the book rather than the introduction. It felt like he shared too much in advance of reading the story.

What I Liked Most:  This is one of the most inspirational books I’ve read. Yes, as one reviewer stated it is sad in places, extremely sad. And Decker's recovery is tough. So if that doesn’t appeal to you, you may need to skip this book. But Carol Decker and her husband are amazing people. This story should help each of us see life through a clearer lens. I would highly recommend it to all.
